RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (BUSINESS WIRE), June 13, 2012 – Lenovo, the second largest PC company in the world, has been named one of “The World’s Most Reputable Companies,” according to the Reputation Institute’s 2012 Global RepTrak™ 100, a reputation study of more than 100,000 consumers that assesses the reputations of the world’s most prominent companies. This is the second consecutive year that Lenovo has been recognized in this prestigious survey.
This achievement capped the most successful year in company history marked by rapid global business growth with full-year record sales of nearly $30 billion, propelling Lenovo from the #4 position to become the world’s second largest PC company in the world.
